Watch Terrelle Pryor throw passes to NFL WRs

It's been eight days since Terrelle Pryor's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, convened a press conference to let everyone know that he expect his client to be a "first-round pick" in the NFL's supplemental draft. It was the first of many PR sleights of hand by Rosenhaus to manufacture interest in Pryor who, by most accounts isn't worth more than a fourth-round pick.

But sometimes perceptions trump reality and when Rosenhaus is writing the script and working the stage lights it's hard to tell where make-believe ends and the truth begins. As NFL Network's Mike Mayock said last week: "Nobody is better than Rosenhaus in driving perceived value. … Sometimes perceived value is almost as good as real value if he can get enough people talking about [Pryor] as a first-round pick."

On Monday, ESPN's Jon Gruden was in Florida to tape a very special "QB Camp" episode featuring Pryor. In an excerpted clip Gruden asks Pryor about the whole "So, what in the world happened at Ohio State?" situation that prompted Pryor to leave school earlier this month.

The show airs in its entirety next week, and perhaps in an effort to lessen the blow of any missteps with Gruden (either on the field on in the classroom), Rosenhaus has released a 75-second video of Pryor working out. He's seen throwing passes to Chad Ochocinco and Antonio Brown who both happen to be represented by Rosenhaus. (Now we're just waiting for Brown to offer unsolicited praise for Pryor's quarterbacking skills.)

As PFT's Michael David Smith notes, "Obviously, Rosenhaus isn’t going to let footage of Pryor’s bad throws get out, so the video that’s been released won’t tell us a whole lot. But it’s still interesting to see how Pryor looks when dropping back and throwing to NFL receivers."

Seen him play a number of times at Ohio State. He's a little better than average college QB, but that doesn't cut it at the pro level.

Better machanics than Cam Newton.  Terrell bought tattoos from selling pants he owned given to him by OSU.  Cam Newton was RECRUITED and given money to play.  Which is worse?   LOL!  get a clue OSU haters.

Is it just me or does T.P. look a bit like a recovering meth or crack addict?

I have an even better idea, pro scouts.  Watch his game film against a d-line and d-backs.

He's just as good, if not better then Cam Newton or Tim Tebow.
